Ez people, so I'm looking at getting into the analog world and obviously first things first is the synth, not completely sure what I'm gonna get yet but that's not the point I'm trying to make in this case... What I'd like to know is if I get let's say a Moog Sub Phatty, which will give me full analog waves to play with, in order to get some really nasty DJ Hazard style bass distortion going, will it be enough to just run the nice juicy analog waves through digital VST plugins like Izotope Trash and still get that level of gritty distortion simply due to the quality of the waves going into the plugin? Or will I instead have to go and invest in some analog distortion hardware to really be able to drive the sound and get that level of distortion I'm after? I'm talking something like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xByWQO-qfkc&t=1m30s I'm guessing it's more a case of the latter, which if true is cool, but I can't really find much information on decent analog distortion hardware? The thing that seems to get mentioned a lot is the Sherman Filterbank 2, but there must be other decent alternatives out there to try? I also know you can run things through guitar pedals for distortion but I imagine most of these wouldn't sound that amazing and would be pretty limited in terms of the variety of sound colouring each would offer? Maybe I'm wrong? Lastly, from MY brief experience I've found that the in-built distortion on a lot of synths isn't quite as rough as what I'm looking for and doesn't really colour the sound enough for me, which is why I'm looking externally, but has anyone come across any synths that you can get some serious serious grit out of without needing much else on the end? I've actually heard the Virus' are pretty good for this, but I'm kind of leaning away from them at the moment as everyone seems to have one and I'd like to go for something with a bit more of a unique sound if possible! Anyways any help or advice anyone can give on the above would be wicked, big ups!
